“Pocket-size but ticks like a bomb.” THE ANIMALS’ VEGAN MANIFESTO in The New York Times

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

In the East Village in the early 1980s, the British-American artist Sue Coe showed some of the strongest political art of the day, and in the most traditional of media: figurative painting, drawing and printmaking stretching back in its influences to Käthe Kollwitz, José Guadalupe Posada and Chittaprosad Bhattacharya. In such work, reportage, advocacy and emotion are never far apart. And propelling themes — in Ms. Coe’s case, racism, war, capitalism and violence against all animals, including humans — are never in doubt.

“It ends with pictures of a happier future for all of us: a vegan future.” THE ANIMALS’ VEGAN MANIFESTO in New Leaves

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

“It ends with pictures of a happier future for all of us: a vegan future. For me the most meaningful picture ­ one of the last three ­ is of a human person stepping out of a cage with a group of various animals watching from the outside of the cage, welcoming this liberation of their fellow creature, a human animal, who has been imprisoned for so long in the violence of their ways.”

“Detailed, expressive, emotional and often quite disturbing”: THE ANIMALS’ VEGAN MANIFESTO is reviewed by the Association of Illustrators

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Artistically this book demonstrates Sue’s skill with woodcarving and printing. The images are detailed, expressive, emotional and often quite disturbing. They show scenes of animal cruelty and abuse from slaughterhouses to zoos, circuses and much more. This book is aiming to upset you, because the message it is communicating is upsetting.

If you believe that as artists we should be using our powers to campaign against social or political injustice, then I highly recommend this book as an example of how to achieve this.

This is an illustrated manifesto from animals to humans imploring us to stop torturing, killing, eating and wearing them.

“Sue Coe is one such artist of integrity. ” THE ANIMALS’ VEGAN MANIFESTO in GOOD READING COPY

Monday, February 13th, 2017

This week in the New Yorker (or on the website anyway – it may be in print as well), Evan Ross writes about “Making Art in a Time of Rage.” You’d be forgiven for immediately hesitating to accept the insights of such a staid publication on matters of rage. “What is the point of making beautiful things,” Ross asks, “or of cherishing the beauty of the past, when ugliness runs rampant?” It’s a valid question, but it also proceeds from a limited view of art’s means and purposes. This is unfair to Ross, though, for the question is a mere jumping off point. Later he observes that, “not only are intensity, beauty, and devotion insufficient to halt violence, they can become its soundtrack,” and later, “Ultimately, artists of integrity will have no choice in how they respond to the Great Besmirchment. Those who thrive on politically charged material will continue in that vein.”

Sue Coe is one such artist of integrity. The world and its injustices are a constant forge for her work, and unfortunately we’ve beached ourselves in an era that’s providing her with more stimulus than usual. I say “unfortunately” and feel sure she’d agree; there’s never yet been a shortage of inequality or injustice for an artist who’s moved by these things to respond to, and I feel sure she’d readily forego the need to produce whatever art comes in response to this more extreme version of events.

“Sue’s advocacy for animals is unmatched in its forcefulness and impact.” THE ANIMALS’ VEGAN MANIFESTO in Our Hen House

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

“In her extraordinary images, Sue’s advocacy for animals is unmatched in its forcefulness and impact. She requires everyone to view the hidden horrors of animal agriculture and criticizes society’s role in perpetuating the violence inherent in the production of food. At the same time, by valuing compassion over greed and community over self, she calls upon all of us to do and be better. What a great way to start the year!”
